Summary

This book is an exploration into the work and practices British artist Kerry Brewer has been developing over seven years. Dark and sumptuous, these large-scale heavily glazed canvases respond constantly to changes in light and the movements of the viewer. The book is a journey through these paintings revealing 'stills' from the works up close and almost as if frame-by-frame. In these works, Brewer combines theories on the growing scientific studies of perception with buried narratives of disquieting under-painting. Neither figurative nor abstract, the effect is disorientating and consuming. The book brings together and explores a selection of nine of these works and presents them for the first time in print.
